Depends how it was shipped. If you happened to check off the 'next day' box on the shipping form, and got it for 14.65, you got a bargain. If it was 30 day slowboat, then it was spendy. And there are lots of other options in between.Whoever charged you 14.65 made a nice profit off of you. Time to shop around for the future.
Never thought I'd be recommending Betterbee again but they have reasonable shipping options. Their bee brush can ship for as little as $2.86. (USPS First-Class Mail -Parcel.)]
Thanks Wayne, I wonder why other suppliers don't offer USPS as an option? I'll sure try Betterbee next time!
I'm trying to work up an order today. I don't need $100 bucks worth of stuff right now, but for the free shipping that Mann has it's hard to beat, and I know I'll use the extra stuff in time. I'll check betterbee out. I've not used them before.That's one reason why I wait to order more than one or two low prices items. Mann Lake loves me and many others. Buy $100 worth and get free shipping. Luckily I have a Walter Kelly Dealer about 30 min from me where I can pick up the small things if and when I need em. Sorry man.
Supposing you were shipping a 10,000 dollar diamond ring to your girlfriend or wife. Would 14.65 be exorbitant? It is not the price of the item that determines the cost of shipping if the weight size and distance were similar.Does anyone else think a shipping charge for a $6 bee brush should be $14.65? :s
